Watt is up with Batteries?

Batteries were first invented at the beginning of the 20th century (1900s) but weren’t widely used until about 60 years later. Today, batteries come in all shapes and sizes, and are used in a variety of electronics, like toys, remotes, cameras, even your game controllers.

How do batteries work? When a battery is used, a reaction happens between the chemicals in the positive end and the chemicals in the negative end of the battery. This reaction produces the energy your electronics need in order to run.

 
 

The Problem

Since batteries provide energy for so many of the things we use every day, what to do with batteries once they are dead becomes a problem. When batteries are thrown out in the trash, they end up in landfills where they not only add to solid waste, but they can also potentially release harmful chemicals into the environment.

Recycle your Batteries

When you take your used batteries to a battery drop-off location, you’re keeping batteries out of landfills and helping to protect animals and the planet. You’re also helping to provide recycled materials and parts that can be used to make new products we use every day, like new batteries and stainless steel pots in your kitchen!

What you can do to help

1. Accept your Battery Blitz Mission and download your Mission Brief.
2. Start collect used batteries! Store them in a container or bag and use tape to cover the ends of each battery.
3. Visit www.earthrangers.com/missions, log in and click Battery Blitz to find your closest recycling station.
4. Drop your used batteries off at the recycling station of your choice.
5. Now that you’ve completed your Battery Blitz Mission, it’s time to celebrate! Let us know how you did.

Remember, you can’t recycle batteries in your regular recycling bin. They have to be recycled at a proper facility!

    It was so easy to collect once I started asking all my family and friends to give me their batteries.

    I always recycle my old batteries, but making a mission out of it reminded me of the importance of recycling as many items as possible.

    It isn’t about winning the pizza party for my school challenge, it’s about saving the animals and their habitat!

    I learned that collecting batteries and recycling them properly is very important in helping our environment. It was fun completing the mission and deliverying them to The Source where we recycled the batteries properly.
